Former Synagogue List
Queens and Richmond (Staten Island) Counties


The following list is composed of synagogues once located Queens and Richmond (Staten Island) counties. A similar list exists for the synagogues of Brooklyn (Kings County), the Bronx, the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and Manhattan as a whole. Most all of these synagogues are no longer active; either the building in which the congregants once worshipped and held meetings is no longer extant or has been converted into some other use. Many of those listed under "Synagogue Name" are actually landsmanshaft (mutual aid) societies.

As shown, the list provides the street address of the building in which they met, the town or country that the organization was once associated with, and of course, the name of the synagogue (or society) itself. The names of towns listed is incomplete, and perhaps some of the entries are incorrect. A worthy effort has been made to ensure its accuracy. Surely anyone who can fill in some of the blanks, so to speak, and is certain they know the name of the town and country (according to today's boundaries) that are associated with a particular "synagogue name" not previously identified, may contact the Museum of Family History at .

One can also see by scanning the list below that many locations housed more than one group of worshippers. One can also surmise that, in a number of these instances, groups that worshipped at the same location also bought burial plots together. This is obviously the case in some instances, but not in all. The Museum hopes this list is useful to many of you.
